Guns N’ Roses performed a concert on this day at the Birmingham Race Course. About 40,000 fans came to the show. Technical difficulties interrupted the show several times, but it ultimately went on. The band played now-classic hit songs such as “Welcome to the Jungle,” “Nightrain,” “November Rain,” “Estranged” and “Sweet Child O’ Mine” among many others. The band ended up performing three encores.
